The Wind Power Plants with Double Feed Induction Generator Application, "AEL-WPP", is used to investigate the design and operation of modern wind power stations. The "AEL-WPP" consists of a prime motor that moves a double-feed induction generator (as a generator for the wind power plant).
This power station includes a SCADA Control Systems which allows the following:
- In one hand the SCADA allows the user to configure the desired wind curve for the experiment. Once the wind curve is configured and the user starts the experiment, the Software controls automatically the AEL-SERIN/CA-1K motor to generate the same wind curve configured by the user.
- In the other hand the SCADA allows to visualize the most important signals of the systems (rotor current, stator current, line voltage, dc bus voltage of the back to back inverter…) and allows to visualize the most important measurements of the system (value of the rotor active power and reactive power, stator active power and reactive power, total active and reactive power, speed of the generator shaft…).
- The software also allows the user to save the experiment data, to analyze the results after the test, through a data visualizer included with the software. The data format of the saved files are compatible with Microsoft excel.
- Finally, the SCADA software allows simulations of voltage dips in the electrical network supplying the doubly fed induction generator. It is possible to simulate dips of 20%, 40% and 60% as well as to specify the voltage dip injection time. Thanks to this simulation it is possible to understand, in a safe and efficient way, the different phenomena to which these types of wind turbines are subjected. The great advantage of being able to simulate voltage dips is that in no case will the machine be subjected to any damage.
This unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
